creaking noise in passenger side rear of '19 R

Picked up my R this past July and slowly over time I'm getting a creaking sound coming from the rear passenger area of the car. It happens when I go over a small bump or driveway where it loads up the opposite corners of the car, like the front right/rear left. The noise doesn't seem to change when I have a rear seat passenger. Anyone have this issue? I need to take it back to the dealer to have this addressed, but I'd like to have an idea of what the issue is.

Put the rear passenger seat back down and try wrapping some electrical tape around the latch that hooks into the seat. I had this issue & this solved it completely.

Thanks for that info. I'll go test it this evening... If that resolves the creak, I'll have the dealer adjust it since it's under warranty...

I had a creak coming from the back which was the headliner rubbing against the top of the C pillar trim, also another creak was the boot lid/tailgate trim (the large part behind the handle/emblem) squeaking against the paint on the tailgate in the area by the access covers of the inner rear lights, easiest way to find it is to spend some time pushing and pulling at all of the interior trim in the rear area that you think it is emanating from, or have someone drive the car while you listen while sat in the back, these noises like to ‘throw their voice’ so to speak so it could be coming from another area!

For me, one of the creaks is because of dry seals at the top of the rear doors. While they look and feel fine, some Wurth (sp?) brand conditioner on the door seals and trunk every year of a dub helps cut down on this.

That's where my noise was coming from.
I searched high and low for that noise and finally found it.

After I put the rear passenger seat down it went away so I left it down..... I never thought a wrapping it with electrical tape thank you.
